If you’ve decided that this is the year you’ll take a stab at gardening or getting your kids involved in learning where their food comes from, this is really easy way to start! Growing tomatoes this way is easy, educational and can save money using tomatoes you may already have that are spoiling or over-ripe.

What we love about this method to grow tomatoes is that it’s an easy way to show your kids the life-cycle of a plant all the way from the original fruit, to it’s planting, it’s early growth and finally maturity. Take it a step further and use the tomatoes to make homemade pasta sauce, pizza sauce or salsa!
